Digital Storytelling revolves around the idea of combining the longstanding art of telling stories with any of the variety of available multimedia tools, including graphics, audio, video animation and web publishing. Digital stories are “mini – movies” created and edited by people like you using cameras, computers, scanners and their own photo albums. Everyone has a story to tell and new technology means anyone can create a story that can be shown on a website or in a digital presentation.
